At this age, the baby does not yet walk. However, it is very important to help your baby move so his crawls can evolve into his first steps in subsequent stages. As a result, it is very important to focus on the development of the baby's feet, provide appropriate footwear and motivate the child with stimulating exercises.
Although shoes served as decorative elements and protection against the cold and humidity during the first six months of the baby's life, they become more important as of the seventh month. At this point, the baby will begin to move around and take his first steps. Appropriate footwear will give the baby confidence and stability when learning to walk.
First, though, it is important to stimulate crawling barefoot at home, in the sand at the beach or in grass. This allows the baby to become aware of his body and improve his balance, and it also helps develop muscles, create the arch of the foot and improve circulation. In summary, this prepares the baby for his first steps.
